“Great Service, Lovely Hotel”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

I stayed in room 11 at Alguer 8-12 Aug 2013 for EUR85/night/single incl b/f booked on Booking.com.

I loved Alguer! I arrived exhausted after a long trip from Palau by public transport (*) to a lovely friendly welcome from Mario together with a piccolo of spumante in my room - gosh how did he know I needed that? I could have kissed Mario :-) Indeed all the family were really kind and hospitable and as single traveller I really appreciated some nice friendly chats. Thank you. Mario explained the facilities etc really well and spoke great English - helped a lot.

I was upgraded to a double room so I was really lucky to get an awesome spacious room, with lovely balcony with view of the neighbourhood (loved the mini washing line with pegs on the balcony - everyone needs this yet no hotels supply it), great A/C but note the bed is very hard if that concerns you. The garden courtyard was a joy to sit in and have breakfast. Nice start to the day. I had everything I needed - cereal, yoghurt, delicious crunchy rolls, cheese and croissants with individually made cappuccinos - I was happy as Larry.

FYI - 2 large supermarkets close by open all day, approx 800m walk along the beach to the historical Old Town. Sunset drinks between 7.30pm and 8.30pm from one of the bars along the Old Town walls is a MUST in summer - the sunset over Capo Caccia is the most glorious I have seen in my life. I was totally gobsmacked. Drinks/dinner is expensive though - if you are on budget, just go to one of the beach bars along the promenade and they are half the price (yeah, I found that out on my last day, 4 days to late :-)

Rather than take a boat out to Grotto Nettuno, take the bus from Via Catalogna (by the park in the Alghero Old Town) to Capo Caccia. (Dep 0920 in August, EUR4.50 return 1200 or 1605 approx 50 mins). It goes via a great tourist route and you get to see the lovely Porto Conte - reported as the most beautiful bay in Sardinia and you go past the popular beaches Bombarde & Lazzaretto if you want to go there on your way back. At the final Capo Caccia bus stop you can then walk down the 400 or so steps to the entrance of the Grotto Nettuno - wow, its really worth it. Again the view from Capo Caccia back over to Porto Conte was just amazing. Alghero and surrounds was just so beautiful. I saw the photos online but it was even better in real life.

I also did a day trip to Bosa Citta to visit the Castello Malaspina - again bus departs from Via Catalogna in the Alghero Old Town (Departs 0930, 1050, 1405 in August, 1 hour, EUR6.50 return. Bus returns 1650, 1825). It was a great day out - totally worth it and you can do it without a car. (Had a fantastic lunch at "La Caffeteria" Piazza Costituzione in Via Vittorio Emanuel, Bosa - "Trufie con Porcini e Gamberie" EUR13 - handmade spiral pasta with porcini mushrooms and prawns - gosh a simple dish but I still think about it ... )

As you can tell Alghero was the best surprise of my 1 month in Italy. I've been to Italy now 8 times since 2007 & seen 15 out of 20 regions and did not expect such a beautiful, clean, picturesque town. So happy I made the effort to do the trip down to Alghero and didnt just stop at La Maddalena & Costa Smeralda - I would really have missed out.

(*) Getting from Palau to Alghero was NOT as painful as I thought by bus - I took bus from Palau Port to Santa Teresa around 1.38pm (around 34km/30mins, EUR2.50) then I took the Digitur bus from Santa Teresa bus station to Alghero Airport at 3pm (133km/around 2.5 hours/EUR16). From the airport I took a taxi to the hotel - 8km/EUR22.

The Hotel Alguer is brilliant value, with a great location, and a lovely room with good facilities. What really sets the hotel apart though is the spirit, generosity and hospitality of its owners Giancarlo and Mario. So friendly and eager to help with whatever you need, these guys went to extra effort to make sure we had a special time in Alghero. When they found out it was my birthday they gave me a bottle of wine and sorted out reservations for us to an amazing restaurant with a beautiful view. Thank you Giancarlo and Mario, and we would definitely stay at the Hotel Alguer again.
(Special mention to Francesco too who makes the best coffee in Alghero!)

We were there in mid May, a little off season. We came with a 10 months old baby; we got a crib in the room. The owner and host speaks French, English and was very helpful and friendly. Reasonably good breakfast. Very well located, walking distance from the old town (about 20 min walk), which is a must see. Just 3 min from the city beach. Two large grocery stores and restaurants very close by. Very nice clean rooms, althoug very simple.

Great little hotel. Owners could not do enough to help everyone. Fairly newly built. One block from promenade and short 15 minute walk from Old Town. Great for short breaks. Extremely keen and well cared for.

Friendly owners, very helpful. Secure parking, pleasant garden for breakfast, A pleasant walk into town along the front. Rooms quiet and comfortable. We only booked for one night, decided we would like another night but sadly they were full. The owners were very helpful in making sure we found another hotel. So dont hesitate like we did, book the number of nights you need. You wont regret it!

Have been to alghero 3 times but never stayed in the lido area where this hotel is. Very happy with this area. 30 seconds to the beach and a nice 15 minute stroll to the old town along the sea

Hotel basic but nice and staff great. Free wifi even reaching our room.

Breakfast ok

Owner is very friendly and nice

Overall would stay here again and recommend

We stayed here for 3 nights and it is a lovely hotel for a few nights in Alghero. We went at peak time in August so Alghero is more expensive at that time, but the hotel was still value for money. The owner has great English and was really friendly and helpful - printing off boarding passes for us, giving us free bus tickets to the airport etc. The room was clean and comfortable with a nice little balcony and complimentary wine. The breakfasts were lovely - croissants, cereal, juice, rolls, fruit, yoghurts - and plenty of it. The location is good too, right across the road from the beach and only a 10-15 minute stroll down to the old town, and right around the corner from an ATM and Conad supermarket. Definitely a nice place to stay in Alghero.

Room Tip: Having the balcony was great for drying off clothes after the beach.
